My favorite beach in Uruguay !
Feb 2020
This beach is an excellent summer destination.
Nestled between the actual points of Punta Colorada and Punta Negra, this beach is my absolute favorite. There are life-guards at the beach in the summer, and there is an impressive range of very interesting places to rent for the entire family.

a must for animal lovers - visit Marine Wildlife Rescue!
Jan 2020
A MUST STOP FOR ANIMAL LOVERS! Punta Colorada is not only a beautiful beach but is home to SOS Rescate de Fauna Marina (SOS Marine Wildlife Rescue). By far this was the most unique and rewarding experience of our vacation in Uruguay, in Jan 2020.
We participated in the 'animal care assistant/volunteering' visit and got to help feed sealions, penguins and the most gentle elephant seal… we even got to swim on the beach near one of the sealions that was getting ready for his return to the sea. Truly unforgettable! Watching the amazing mother-like bond the orphan baby seals establish with Richard Tesore, SOS founder, and how they respond and follow his call is incredible.

Here is more info about the tours/prices that were available in Jan 2020:

Beautiful beach in Piriapolis
Feb 2020
Piriapolis is a small beach town on the way to Punta del Este from Montevideo. Piriapolis actually pre-dated the Punta del Este. We thought it was a much more laid-back version of Punta del Este with normal restaurants and clubs. We saw a vintage hotel and plenty of people crossing the street on their way to the massive playa (beach) area. It felt like a Mediterranean beach town.
It is much less crowded than other beaches. Hotels in town are more affordable than in Punta del Este as well.

Lovely place, with good houses and apartments to stay. The sunset is glorious, and you can enjoy it summer and winter. Great place to charge your batteries, hope next year to go back.

Great beach to enjoy whole day with the family
Jan 2017 • Family
not too crowded, is great to go with family. Quiet, secure, breeze all day. Services are not available so remember to bring your own drinks and food for the day. It's a very natural beach, not human intervention has been done here yet.
